3 stars It's 1982 again.

Many said this is 'carbon copy' Rush mid 80's, but I see more the 79'-83' new wave trend here! Of course, the guitars has lots of chorus effect in them (a Lifeson trademark) but is it so obvious?

Honestly, no. At least not on every song.

Clearly Mars Direct and Ebb and Flow has a certain Rush 'click' but if I haven't read some reviews saying: 'it's so Rush this and Rush that...' , I wouldn't really noticed anything that much. Perhaps on certain moments you can pinpoint Power Windows or Signals but if you want a REAL Rush tribute, try Tiles or at least Enchant.

What I see more in this album is Ah-Ha (the vocals and good choruses in Ripples in Time), Duran Duran (Strat guitar riffs), The Cure (toms rolling, airy keyboards) and perhaps XTC and Flock of Seagulls. This is a real tribute to an era that clearly means a lot to the band.

Okay, don't buy this album thinking you'll live the Rush dream again, because I did and it's not that impressive; BUT it has enough hooks to make you sing out loud and press replay on your cd player. Great keyboards as usual, a large palette of sounds and good vocals (not like Geddy, sorry).

Singularity became my favorite band recently with their two other albums, but this one is convincing me that this is no ordinary band.

It's 1982 again...and it's good.
